Newly appointed Boiling Spring Lakes Police Chief Emmett Ballree is still under investigation. He is accused of violating rules while he was a police chief in another town. Today he went before the state agency that's handling the investigation, but the meeting didn't last very long. Chief Ballree tells us the Training and Standards Division in Apex postponed his meeting until August. The committee told Ballree they need more time to investigate. Ballree is accused of using the town of Mount Olive's credit card to gas up his personal car. Ballree said he did use the card to put gas in his car, but it was business purposes. If the state agency proves he violated their code of conduct, he could lose his certification as Boiling Spring Lakes Police Chief.
